20mph speed limit for Kewstoke?

FLASHING signs, HGV weight restrictions and a 20mph speed limit are just some of the suggestions Kewstoke residents gave the thumbs up to during a recent consultation.

FLASHING signs, HGV weight restrictions and a 20mph speed limit are just some of the suggestions Kewstoke residents backed during a recent consultation.

The parish council asked villagers to come along to the event to voice their opinions over whether traffic calming measures should be introduced on their roads.

Local authority officers representing the highways department came up with the idea to narrow the road where Crookes Lane meets Kewstoke Road and also above Anson Road heading towards Kewstoke.

The plans include blanketing the village with a 20mph speed limit and banning HGVs and buses from parts of Kewstoke Road and along Sand Road from Queens Way.

The parish council then wanted to consult villagers about how they feel about the plans.

An overwhelming majority of those who turned up said they would like there to be a continuous footpath or pavement from Kewside to the beach. They also said that Monks Hill should have an HGV and bus ban and that the 20mph speed limit should be introduced on all roads apart from Queens Way to Post Office Corner.
